Rutgers coach fired after abusive video broadcast

Rutgers University fired head basketball coach Mike Rice on Wednesday after ESPN broadcast a video showing him physically and verbally abusing players.

"Based upon recently revealed information and a review of previously discovered issues, Rutgers has terminated the contract of Mike Rice," the school said in a tweet Wednesday.

"You f**king fairy ... you're a f**king fa**got," Rice appears to say during one session depicted on the video.

      My ex wife was named Bertha. Not Katherine. That's a pretty name.

    For all that alliteration, this coach isn't very verbal.
